Belt removal on a 94

Does anyone have trick for removing belts?I've got the radiator out for repairs so thought I might as well replace the belts.
All the tensioners and loosening bolts are loose. The water pump belt came off pretty easy. I had to cut the alt belt off, and the PS belt won't budge. Any suggestions?

Did you loosen the alternator tensioner? It has those 2 nuts you loosen with a sliding mechanism. Should have come off real easy.

On the power steering pump, there's two pivot nuts to loosen, and also the adjuster bolt on the bottom. But there's not always enough range to the adjustment, so you may not be able to get the belt over the pulley. Best bet is to just take the pulleys off... and then go up one size in the belt lenght.

Did this, still didn't have enough tension to remove belt so I cut it off. Hopefully not as hard to replace.

Take a picture of your alternator tensioner loosened up...I'd be surprised.
